May is for Mothers

Our staff at Insurance Resources would like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all our moms out there. We recognize your hard work and sacrifices you make on a daily basis to keep the households running smoothly. 

Do you know your value as a Mom? If you had to replace all you do, you would be shocked at the amount it would cost. Most families recognize the need to have Life insurance for the main bread-winner (often the dad), but they neglect to recognize the importance of also protecting against the loss of a mother’s life, even if she is not bringing home a paycheck.

We want to protect your entire family, whether it's from a disaster or accident. Whether you have Life insurance elsewhere, or haven't decided to purchase coverage yet, we encourage you to reach out to our Life agents. We have access to many financially strong carriers offering competitive premiums for whatever type of Life insurance need you may have.

As always if you have any questions on the types of insurance we offer, please feel free to contact us.

-Anita Crockett Ford, Principal/Owner

Fraudulent Claims Bring About Policy Language Changes

The rising number of fraudulent water and roof damage claims has resulted in many carriers limiting coverages and revamping policy language. Read more about what Citizens is doing to combat the fraudulent claims in our latest blog. Doing so may save you if you were to suffer a loss. Read more in our latest blog post!
TypTap Insurance Appointment

We are excited to announce our recent appointment with TypTap Insurnace. A subsidiary of Homeowners Choice, TypTap began offering stand alone private market flood options for Floridians in 2016. TypTap's premiums are extremely competitive and offer a viable alternative to the NFIP policies so many of us have. There are some benefits and drawbacks to coverage so we encourage you to reach out to your agent to discuss all your options.

Life Insurance

What you need to know

Life insurance is something you have heard about numerous times, but do you know what it is?  Below is a basic overview of the coverages and concepts behind it: 
  • There are two main types of life insurance policies: Term Life and Whole Life.
  • Term Life provides coverage for a certain number of years (a term) for a level premium. The premiums are typically cheaper the younger you are and become substantially higher the older an individual gets
  • Whole Life provides coverage for your entire life. The death benefit is usually less than Term's, but the policy can build cash value unlike Term Life.
  • The amount to purchase is specific to each person and the needs of their beneficiaries.  
Purchasing a life insurance policy doesn't need to be difficult.  Contact your Insurance Resources agent today to determine the right policy for you.
